We had a cottage rental in September nearby and had a nice dinner at the Slipway. Nice view, good staff, good beer. Food was excellent.
I go to The Slipway twice a week. When I read negative reviews, it's clear to me these people know little if anything about quality food and the preparation of it. I am 71 and having been cooking since I was 7. I have dined at over 2000 restaurants around the world, and wrote a restaurant guide that was very... More
We were looking for a nice spot to have lunch with a good view. The Slipway was a pleasant surprise. The food was very good & the location is great. Right on the water, with a nice pier. It was a cool breezy day, so we dined inside a very comfortable dining room overlooking the water. The food was very... More
Eight of us in a wedding party had lunch here one day on the recommendation of a friend who lives in the area. We enjoyed our visit so much that we returned the next day with more of our party. We were seated on the dock area at picnic tables. We found the service to be friendly and attentive. The... More
We are a bit late in posting our July, 2013 visit but am happy now to report this was a gem we had driven hundreds of miles to find. We didn't know it existed but as we meandered north we crossed a bridge over the bay and spotted this restaurant. We were so pleased. The hostess took us to the... More
We hoped for a good experience especially because the owners previously ran The Dip Net. However the view was very mediocre, the food was poor and it was way overpriced. You are on the water but it is kind of an industrial feel. Our sandwiches felt like ones you might get in a 3rd graders lunch box. I had the... More
We were in Thomaston and a friend recommended this place. When we arrived, we loved the view of the river. Little did we know that was the last thing we would like. The service was very slow, but when the salads finally did arrive, I was shocked. It was a small little pile of lettuce with a little shredded carrots.... More
We wanted to give a friend "from away" a good Maine lunch in a real Maine setting. The Slipway filled the bill on all counts. We were seated outside on the dockside dining area (and it helped that the weather was perfect). We all ordered fried oysters, in one form or another, and they were done perfectly-- moist, sweet, tender.... More
Mom's homemade pies, Scott's lobster bisque, locals favorite. It just tastes and feels good and like real Maine. It's fun and fine. If its packed, try again.
I have been summering in Maine since I was16 months old. That's 78 years. I love fried anything that comes out of the ocean - clams, oysters, fish, squid, lobster etc. But not everyone shares my passion. The slipway solves that problem by offering a sophisticated menu of nontraditional seafood and nonseafood dishes. Don't be fooled by the location and... More
